The Arizona Cardinals will face the Washington Commanders in a little less than three weeks for their 2023 season opener on the road. They know who will start at quarterback.
Howell won the job in a competition with veteran Jacoby Brissett, who signed as a free agent in the offseason.
When the Cardinals face the Commanders in Week 1, it will be only Howell’s second career NFL start.
He made his regular-season debut last year as a rookie, starting in Week 18 for the Commanders. They beat the Dallas Cowboys 26-6. He completed 1-of-19 passes for 169 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He also ran five times for 35 yards and a touchdown.
Howell was a fifth-round pick in 2022.
As things appear, it will be Colt McCoy for the Cardinals starting at quarterback against Howell.
